Someone else made that happen?

this is a discussion within the Everything Else Community Forum; It is my opinion (and that's all it is really), that the longer these guys hang out in Washington the more out of touch with reality they become. I get why things are what they are, and I think the ...

It is my opinion (and that's all it is really), that the longer these guys hang out in Washington the more out of touch with reality they become. I get why things are what they are, and I think the framers knew what they were doing, however in the beginning it was truly about serving.

It hasn't been about serving for a very long time.

Two terms in the Senate is what, 12 years? I'm sorry but drastic measures need to be taken. The politicians get too comfortable. Their cronies get too comfortable. Move them along. Remove the desire to protect a position with people with new ideas who want to implement them - real solutions to serious problems.

The whole idea behind term limits at all is to limit corruption. It seems to me we need to do more to limit corruption, because it's rampant in Washington, and so I'm fully supportive of the idea.

And those unfamiliar with the benefits these fools get...FOR LIFE...should get familiar with them. It's insane. Maybe I should start a new thread. LOL

The most famous words of Obama's presidency

From a friend watching the Olympics: "How about that Michael Phelps? But let's remember he didn't win all those medals, someone else did. After all, he and I swam in public pools, built by state employees using tax dollars. He got training from the USOC, and ate food grown by the Department of Agriculture. He should play fair and share his medals with people like me, who can barely keep my head above water, let alone swim."
The note was merry and ironic. And as the games progress, we'll be hearing a lot more of this kind of thing, because President Obama's comment—"You didn't build that"—is the political gift that keeps on giving.
They are now the most famous words he has said in his presidency. And oh, how he wishes they weren't.

"You Olympians know, however, that you didn't get here solely on your own power. For most of you, loving parents, sisters, and brothers encouraged your hopes. Coaches guided. Communities built venues and organized competitions. All Olympians stand on the shoulders of those who lifted them. We've already cheered the Olympians, let's also cheer the parents, coaches, and communities." -Mitt Romney

And then, when bashing the president for saying that small-businesses don't build roads and bridges, Romney echoed the same sentiment.

Come on, dude.

I LOATHE Liberals.

Know that. When you are dealing with AlaskaSaints, you are dealing with and ABLE Veteran who loathes liberals.

Fair. Not a hand-out but a hand-up. Welfare. EBT. Food Stamps. Section 8 housing. Alaska Permanent Dividend Fund. Free lunch program. Handicap parking for non-paraplegics. Handicap parking period. Equal Opportunity Employment. Social Services. Social experimenting... An on and on and on.

I loathe these things.

Re: Someone else made that happen?

It's a welfare state AlaskaSaints. And it's getting worse. We are making bad, BAD decisions. In California, for example, they've stopped teaching Civics, among other things, because they "can't afford it".

Seriously.

But they can fund all those things you mentioned, and out here in the "People's Republic" they are funding much MUCH more. It is maddening and it is insane and it needs to be stopped.

It's funny. All the uber-liberals in the Bay Area live over in Marin County, where they voted and were adamant about keeping OUT public transportation like BART. LOL

People need to read the damn Constitution. Then again, half the people casting votes in this country never have, and never will. America is on the hell express, and it ain't stopping any time soon from what I can tell unless or until the people of this country TAKE IT BACK.

Once you get beyond Lincoln you're dealing with a different kind of liberal I'm afraid.

Very true.
My point was that there have been great men from that side, as well as the right. 'Loathing' either side is divisive and counterproductive. (welcome to America, 2012)

Free lunch? Really? For a while in elementary school I didn't have free lunch and as a consequence I DIDN'T HAVE ANY LUNCH! I guess if I was really hungry I could have eaten out of the trash, right? You're a moron. If you weren't a veteran I'd have no respect for you at all.
